Morphology-based phylogenetic analysis of the clawed lobsters family Nephropidae and the new family Chilenophoberidae. In fact, many Hoploparia are well covered by granules or tubercles. Lobsters, like many other decapod crustaceans, grow throughout life and are able to add new muscle cells at each moult. Hoploparia buntingi 00?

Archived from the original PDF on June 6, Eunephrops bairdii Eunephrops cadenasi Nephropides caribaeus Homarinus capensis 0??? Telomerase is especially present in ‘Green Spotted’ lobsters nephropdiae whose markings are thought to be produced by the enzyme interacting with their shell pigmentation [14] [15] [16] Lobster longevity is limited by their size. The following page uses this file: There is, among nephroppidae, a continuum between ornamented ridges that are topographically high, topographically low, and simple, unelevated rows of projections.


Abdominal pleura quadrate as on Thaumastocheles: It is a deepwater genus with very large eyes; most species are known from deeper than meters.

Also, the gastric tubercle a small projection located dorsomedially on the cephalothorax, approximately midway between the orbit and the postcervical groove is present on most Eunephrops but absent on Hoploparia.

We used all known char- judgements had to be made. In the second analysis, which had the same heuristic search settings as the first analysis, the data were reweighted successively, as specified by Farris’s successive weighting approach to character weighting, until the weights fpssil.

For the master data matrix, we selected 28 nephropid taxa for cladistic analysis. Help Center Find new research papers in: Cladistic analysis herein shows that Nephropidas is a paraphyletic group, and, therefore, we failed to reject the hypothesis.

Hoploparia is not a natural group but is, instead, Prothero, D. Metanephrops is an extant, clawed lobster genus Family Nephropidae with a very distinctive, carinate and spiny cephalothorax. This was most true for carapace grooves, which sometimes are neither plainly evident nor plainly absent.


hephropidae Published by Brill NV, Leiden. Bremer support values were computed in the program TreeRot Version 2. In the taxon-reduced matrix, also of 35 characters, three are constant, and four variable characters are autapomorphous, leaving 28 as parsimony informative. Microbiology and Molecular Biology Reviews. Through successive weighting, the phylogenetic signal in the original matrix can be enhanced, even when cladistically reliable characters are heavily outnumbered by unreliable ones Farris, However, when lobster skin is found in lobster stomachs, this is not necessarily evidence of nephropiddae — lobsters eat fosisl shed skin after moulting.

Lobster recipes include lobster Newberg and lobster Thermidor. Telson with spine on each posterior corner: This, plus its diversity in the Lower Cretaceous, strongly suggests that Hoploparia was ancestral to some or many modern nephropid genera Mertin, ; Secretan, ; Glaessner, ; Tshudy, Sign In or Create an Account.
